About the Tekla Structural Designer plugin

You can select any number of steel connections and members in Tekla Structural Designer and export them to IDEA StatiCa for structural designing. All beams, cross-sections, and operations (bolts, holes, welds, and cuts) are also completely synchronized if the Tekla Structural Designer model changes. IDEA StatiCa and Tekla Structural Designer give you an efficient workflow for your structural steel design that saves time, minimizes errors, helps with optimization, and makes the data available to your colleagues or subcontractors doing detailing and fabrication.

You do not need anything special to get started - just download and install both applications on the same PC, IDEA StatiCa will automatically detect the Tekla Structural Designer installation and activate the plugin. And you can start exporting and designing steel connections right away!


Tekla Structural Designer BIM link is developed and maintained by a third-party integration company. IDEA StatiCa does not take any responsibility for this integration. All technical requirements and questions must be addressed to the developer.
